Cowboys sign Hezron Murgha

The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys have added Northern Pride fullback Hezron Murgha to their playing roster for the 2014 NRL season.

A dynamic runner and excellent support player who has scored 13 tries in 15 Intrust Super Cup matches this year, Murgha has agreed to a two-year contract and will take part in his first NRL pre-season starting in November.

From the Yarrabah Seahawks in the Cairns and District Junior Rugby League competition, Murgha is in strong contention for a Queensland Residents berth this month and is one of the key reasons why the Pride are sitting on top of the ISC ladder.

The 27-year-old has now played 68 matches and scored 35 tries in his ISC career.
